It’s a Saturday morning and it’s ridonkulously early at 6.12 am as I type this. It’s the 29th of October and in another 2 days we will be greeting the month of November. A few days ago I made a decision that may mean a few things: I still make some impulsive decisions; I can be completely and irrationally optimistic or I must be going a little mad.
November has been linked to the National Novel Writing Month for some time now and I think over time and with the increasing popularity of blogging an off-shoot of that formed for bloggers all over the blogosphere. Rarasaur, a very well known and well loved blogger on WordPress created an “unofficial” “little” movement a few years ago called NanoPoblano to encourage her blog friends and community to blog, blog, blog through the month of November. So yes, in essence when you sign up as a NanoPoblano-er, you make a commitment to publish one blog post
And..yup, I signed up for it…again! Because she’s a crafty little dinosaur, and lovable, and sweet and convincing…she promised me a motivational poster starring Abigail, the magical talking sloth with the pink tutu. How could I pass up on that! A motivated sloth is magical in and of itself, add the ability to talk AND wearing a pink tutu?
You know, the last time I did this was 3 years ago..and I barely survived that experience but you know what..it was an awesome, crazy month! I remember it being challenging, scary, stressful BUT even with all that..totally awesome!
So yes..if you are a blogger and want to participate in this November madness, just send in your blog’s address (here) and you’ll be more than welcomed! Take a look around to get an idea of what it is and all the great tips and such posted too! That will be here. And, if you are a reader of blogs then follow the blogs on this list…you never know whom you’ll click with or what gems you’ll stumble on…that’s exciting..isn’t it?
